Some encounters can light your day in a flash.
We were taking leave of our friends. Dog into the boot of the car, bags on the backseat. In the confusion our friend bumped into a young man who was cycling on the pavement.
"Oh, sorry," said our frined.
"No, no," answered the cyclist, "I'm doing something that is illegal."
"So am I," said our friend, while he kissed me goodbye.
"Ah!" returned the man, as he bumped off the pavement. "But you are having the better deal!"
